Review: Bedside Manners by Phoebe Fox

Review: This one was pretty meh on my first read, so when I didn’t write my review right away and had some space in my reading schedule, I decided to give it another chance in November hoping I would like it more. I didn’t like it more, but I didn’t like it less. It was so very meh. 🙁 It was cute and chicklitty, one of those “modern working woman” spins on “the shoemaker’s children go barefoot:” Brooke gives relationship advice for a living but can’t seem to get her own romantic shit together. Very Carrie Bradshaw (although she always […]

Review: Sweet Bliss by Helena Rac

Review: First of all, this book was so fun, but so was becoming Twitter besties with Helena Rac and sharing my reactions with her while I read. 😛 @BookBumblings Thanks so much! Hope you enjoy it! ♥♥♥ — Helena Rac (@HelenaRacAuthor) November 9, 2015 @BookBumblings Omg Brittany, you're the first to let me know you started it! I hope you continue to love as you get through the story! 😊 😅 ♥ — Helena Rac (@HelenaRacAuthor) November 16, 2015 But then “needs to read” got in the way of “wants to read” and I caused someone else anxiety, which is […]

Review: Ninja at First Sight by Penny Reid

Review: So, this happened last week: @bberg1010 #NoRegrets — Penny Reid (@ReidRomance) November 17, 2015 And it was really bad, because it was days until I could actually finish because of work and shiz and stuff and more shiz. I had to avoid the Facebook fan group, not because of spoilers but because of reactions I’d be jealous of. But that was the cool thing about this novella, and my lack of overall memory: even though I read a portion of it a year ago, it felt like new. Last year’s version was a shorter story. And when someone with a bad […]

Review: The Pitch by Belinda Williams

Review: Eh. My hopes were so high for this. I’m always a sucker for a hero or heroine working in PR or marketing. So when I see that, I jump. I think I need to start being more selective, especially when I’m normally so fucking picky when selecting books to read. Those careers, and dance, are my exceptions. It was a pretty cliche “woman trying to have it all” story where everything worked out a little too easily. Conflicts weren’t particularly conflicty. Struggles were overcome or worked out easily. Everyone got along all the time. And the workplace dynamics really bothered […]

Review: The Coincidence of Coconut Cake by Amy E. Reichert

Review: This book was pretty so-so. I always enjoy a light chick lit, which this was. It’s been awhile since I’ve gone back to this genre, so that part of the reading experience was fun. And it was a fun read. It was easy and light, as well as funny at parts. The perfect beach read – which makes me mad that it was the only paperback I planned to read at the beach earlier this summer. I ended up taking out of my bag at my parents house right before we left and left it there. #wompwompwomp Anyway, the […]

Review: The Temp by Emily Benet

Review: I don’t know where to start with this book. I love weird, but this book was weird in a bad way. This review is going to be much more negative than the ones I like writing. Normally, if I disliked a book this much, I wouldn’t review it at all, but this is an ARC so I feel like I should. I think the worst problem was a wholly unlikeable main character. I just wanted to slap Amber so many times. She was naive and flakey and didn’t seem to take anything seriously. “Oh, I have no artistic talent, […]

#ThrowbackThursday Review: Neanderthal Seeks Human by Penny Reid

Welcome to the second edition of Throwback Thursday reviews! And whaddaya know, it’s also the second Throwback Thursday of reviewing a Penny Reid book! In case you missed it last week, Throwback Thursday reviews are short posts talking about a book I read a while ago. They’re different from my regular reviews because they’re less of a critical review/analysis and more just me talking about why I liked a book. Sure, I do that in regular reviews, but I also do the other stuff. And in case you also missed this last week, Beauty and the Mustache was released (You […]
